ABC Nev Schulman and Jenna Johnson

No catfish here: Nev Schulman earned 10s across the board!

On Monday, during the Halloween-themed Villains Night round of Dancing with the Stars, the Catfish host and pro Jenna Johnson received the season's first 30 out of 30 score from judges Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

For their week 7 routine, the pair danced the paso doble to “Swan Lake Remix," drawing inspiration from the Black Swan movie.

Schulman said in a video that played before his performance that he had seen the Swan Lake ballet "20 times" and called himself and his dad "superfans" of New York City Ballet, so the high score meant a lot to the MTV star because of the connection to his father.

"I think I have swan bumps," Schulman said of receiving a 30 out of 30.

Prior to this week's perfect score, the stars who were the closest were Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir and his pro partner Britt Stewart, who earned a 29 out of 30 for their contemporary to "Total Eclipse of the Heart" in week 5.

On Monday, Weir, as Dracula, and Britt Stewart landed towards the top of the leaderboard again on Villians Night with their Viennese waltz to “Creep” by Vincent/Kimberly Nichole and picked up a score of 27.

Other impressive performances from Villians Night included rapper Nelly and Daniella Karagach — who also earned a 27, their highest score of the season — for their Argentine tango to The Weeknd’s hit “Can’t Feel My Face” inspired by Freddy Kruger.
